I am a Ph.D. candidate in Health Economics and Policy in the Department of Health Policy and Management at the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health. My research agenda is focused on understanding how the interaction of health policies and healthcare markets affects access to care, influences patient and provider behaviors, and changes healthcare spending, with a particular focus on behavioral health. My preferred approach is to use large, observational datasets and apply rigorous econometric methods to isolate the causal effects that health policies have on utilization, spending, and health outcomes. My job market paper (linked below) explores the effects of the shift to telemedicine during the COVID-19 pandemic on mental health care utilization, health outcomes, and spending. I will be available for interviews for the 2021-2022 job market.
